Welcome to The Painting Pottery Cafe

We love to help individuals or groups spend an hour or two in our fun and creative environment. You can choose from hundreds of ceramic items to paint, try your hand at playing with clay, or come to an evening class and make something great!


Everyone, no matter their age or ability, enjoys their experience and has something handmade and unique to take home. 

Don't take our word for it – check out our reviews on TripAdvisor or Facebook. We’ve recently earned the Hall of Fame award, and couldn’t be prouder!

Please don't hesitate to get in touch - we are here to help!



We do pottery painting every day, and teach throwing most days. We also have super fun special events running throughout the year.


Gift Vouchers Available

Bookings for our Taster Throwing sessions have gone through the roof this year. It looks as though many of you have been as inspired by ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down’ as we have! If you know someone who'd like a go, we've got the perfect present! Buy a Gift Voucher for a Taster Throwing Session - as long as there are 2 people in the class we can run it, so bring yourself too!

Alternatively, check out our Evening Classes; with a different theme each month, there's sure to be something for everyone!

Vouchers for painting sessions are also available in £15, £20, £25 and £30. Give us a call or pop into the shop to purchase!

What We Do…

Great Daddy daughter time
— We came to Brighton on an overnight stay for my husbands birthday, the weather was artic cold so knew we would need an indoor activity, so our daughter with the help of her Dad done him a new mug, it's a fabulous little cafe, all the staff are so friendly and polite and the range of items you can choose to paint is extensive. We had lovely Lattes whilst they painted and the mug is being posted to us once it's ready. We had a lovely couple of hours in this beautiful,cosy little cafe and most importantly our 3 year old simply loved it xx Kirsty G - TripAdvisor


Creative delight
— Had a brilliant time here while on a day trip to Brighton on Saturday. We were amazed by the range of ages and visitors, from 6+ months to 80yrs, all ages welcome. A great place for an alternative group activity with friends. Fantastic value for money, at £5 pp studio fee, which covers your paints, tools, glaze and kiln use + whatever the cost of the item you choose to paint. My friend and I had a great time here, and can't recommend it enough. A great activity for all ages. Don't worry if you don't live in the area, because the lovely people there offer postage.
